Artist's description:

This work done on sanded Paper in graphite, conté crayon, charcoal, soft pastel, chalk, oil and ink and the image measures 24" x 42". It is unframed. Drawn to Native American photographs of Edward S. Curtis from at an early age I am returning to this, my favorite genre and subject matter, Native Americans. This work is inspired by a photograph taken by Edward S. Curtis titled Vash Son - Jacarilla. It's a series dedicated to the Native Americans and their ongoing plight against the industrialization and development of their lands for capitalisms gain. The powerful and noble expression on the weathered face of this proud Native American women depicts the hard and painful struggles she has endured in her life and the injustices against her people. The profile view shows the strength of this women and how she maintains strong as the blackness of the composition seems to be enveloping her much like American greed is trying to extinguish these beautiful people.
